I am new here. I came here to ask about this small sword I found a couple of years ago. I think it used to belong to my father. The scabbard seems to be made of lead and the sword is currently stuck in it. Can anybody tell me something about this sword? I keep wondering what it might be. Perhaps it was used for decoration? Thank you :)

EDIT: The sword is about 55 centimeter while in the scabbard. I am from Belgium, perhaps this is usefull information. I tried taking closer pictures of the blade (both sides)

    It would help if you said where it was found. – Lars Bosteen Nov 3 '17 at 2:14

    It might be useful to have some idea of the dimensions - overall length, width of the blade, hilt, etc. From the image it appears to be single-edged with a fuller on the back, is that the case or is it just a trick of the lighting? – Steve Bird Nov 3 '17 at 7:23
  • Please provide a banana for scale. Or a ruler I suppose. – Schwern Nov 3 '17 at 17:43
  • Hi, I have updated the post with new pictures and some information. – SidneuDR Nov 4 '17 at 18:11
  • Some features (scabbard and fuller) seem similar to the dagger discussed here, from North Africa but not the shape of course. It also resembles some forms of the Kama from the Caucasus region. – justCal Nov 4 '17 at 18:40
